Norse Atlantic, will soon open up real-time booking for WebCargo’s thousands of forwarders on its flights to and from Europe to seven destinations in the US, Los Angeles International for technology, perishables, and other shipments. Of note for those forwarders booking to Latin America, Norse Atlantic operates out of Miami International, the gateway to South America.
